I came in the room a few minutes later and noticed Nolan was really upset, so I asked him what was bothering him.
Nolan responded, "Dad is mad at me, so he doesn't like me. But he means everything to me."
That seriously hurt my heart. I reminded him again that nothing he does could stop his dad and I from loving him. Being upset is not the same as not liking or living someone.
The sweet part of this story, at least, is seeing such an amazing bond between Francis and Nolan.
